    Bowie's are what we want, not what we need! :D
    Those BRK Vest Pocket Bowie's are still availible, some of them in wood.

    My pick for a smaller Bowie/Camp knife was the 2016 #A Limited Edition.
    7" bladelenght and enough weight to do some chopping, but easy to pack or beltcarry.
    Only 70 made and no regrets, as it has proven to be what I hoped it would be.

    What's wrong with that? Nothing like a knife with a blade as long as your forearm. o_O

    Mikael is right! Owning a good bowie knife is one of life's simple pleasures.


    For a production knife I like the old Camillus/Fisk bowies. The one above is the 11" model, but there was a smaller 7" made as well. You'll have to do some searching, but it'll be worth it in the end.

    I should have bought the 7" when they were availible.
